The East Bend Library opened its doors in 2011 and is the newest addition to the Deschutes Public Library System. This library is located across from The Forum shopping center right off of Highway 20. The East Bend Library is a rented 8,000 square foot storefront designed by Jim Landin and BRLB/GGL Architects of Bend.

This small and mighty library offers full services such as books, music, and movies; public computers; a community meeting room and hosts library-sponsored lectures and presentations as well as story times; and an interactive Early Learning space for children. Several of the library’s programs for adults and children are offered in English and Spanish. Free WiFi is available throughout the building.

    Discuss The Final Revival of Opal & Nev by Dawnie Walton.
    Join via Zoom: https://us06web.zoom.us/j/87176773962

    Email paigeb@deschuteslibrary.org to request a book to pick-up at your local library.

    Opal is a fiercely independent young woman pushing against the grain in her style and attitude, Afro-punk before that term existed. Coming of age in Detroit, she can't imagine settling for a 9-to-5 job--despite her unusual looks, Opal believes she can be a star. So when the aspiring British singer/songwriter Neville Charles discovers her at a bar's amateur night, she takes him up on his offer to make rock music together for the fledgling Rivington Records. In early seventies New York City, just as she's finding her niche as part of a flamboyant and funky creative scene, a rival band signed to her label brandishes a Confederate flag at a promotional concert. Opal's bold protest and the violence that ensues set off a chain of events that will not only change the lives of those she loves, but also be a deadly reminder that repercussions are always harsher for women, especially black women, who dare to speak their truth. Decades later, as Opal considers a 2016 reunion with Nev, music journalist S. Sunny Shelton seizes the chance to curate an oral history about her idols.

    An unforgettable evening of singing...together! All voices are welcome.

    This is an in-person program. Masks are recommended at all in-person library events. Singing masks will be available for all attendees.

    Group singing is one of the most ancient technologies of belonging. Especially after over a year of keeping away from one another, this is a potent opportunity to come together to give ourselves the neurochemical and emotional reboot of making beautiful sounds together.

    Community songleader Ian Carrick is reinvigorating our culture with singing. Somehow we've mostly forgotten that singing together is our birthright. After a decade of searching for accessible forms of community-based music and recovering his own voice, Ian founded Open Hub Singing in 2016 after discovering a widespread North American cultural revival of aural tradition singing.

    Discover easy, microwave-friendly vegan recipes for those busy nights.

    This is a live webinar. Receive the Zoom link by using the "Register Here for Online Access" link above.

    Homework. Soccer practice. Band rehearsal. The new school year is here, and with it comes shorter days, busier nights, and even less time to prepare nutritious meals for you and your family. Join 2x cookbook authors Robin Coarts and Jules Schnedeker as they share tips, tricks, and recipes from their latest cookbook, Plant-Based College Cooking: The Ultimate Guide for the Broke + Busy. Whether you're in a dorm room setting or running a busy household, these delicious, microwave-friendly recipes will fit into any budget and lifestyle.

    Jules's life forever changed in May 2016. After innocently hitting play on a documentary, Forks Over Knives, she suddenly saw the impact our every day food choices had on everything: the planet, non-human animals, and our health. She went vegan overnight and never looked back. In fact, this change was so transformative that she eventually quit her corporate job, moved across the country with nothing but her car and her dog, and put her money where her mouth was by starting Plant-Based Point.

    Along with a masters in humane education, Jules holds a BA in creative writing from The New School and has been project management professional (PMP) certified since 2011. When she's not busy telling her dog how cute he is, she's usually scouting new vegan products (she considers her taste-testing videos a public service), trail running, blogging, or learning French. (Je suis très mauvais.)

    Early in life, Robin made the decision to not eat meat. As she experienced more and more, got married, and had children, she transitioned to eating a plant-based/vegan diet and raising her children the same way. While ironing out her food and health choices, Robin worked professionally in the family services field, helping families during end-of-life care and support.

    What began as a hobby -cooking and talking about healthy foods- evolved into a deep passion to educate families on the importance (and more importantly, the fun!) of eating plant-based/vegan foods.

    Along with a masters in humane education, Robin also holds an MA in thanatology, a BS in psychology, a BS in gerontology, and wait there's more - a certificate in plant-based nutrition through eCornell. When she's not in the kitchen or out running trails, you'll find her with her two sons and husband. *zm*
